“Today’s children are the future…this is why as part of the volunteer group at DASQ, I’m glad to have been accepted for my own benefit.” –Alvin Batista, Afterschool Tutor Volunteer

“Seeing the young minds of children at work, the way they think and see life really made an impact on my life. I’m glad that I got the opportunity to be a part of DASQ.” –Christian Marquez, Afterschool Tutor Volunteer

“Before coming to DASQ, I didn’t like to talk a lot of Spanish even though I’m Hispanic. Now I find myself speaking to anyone in both English and Spanish…DASQ has made me more outgoing and friendly.” –Iliana Batista, Secretary Assistant Volunteer

“This experience has helped me develop my skills and ability to work with kids…I love working with kids and I feel like I can help and take care of my own kids in the future.” –Stephan Iqbal, Afterschool Tutor Volunteer

Bilingual Afterschool Instructor

The instructor should be actively involved with the students, focusing on improving their academic records as well as strengthening areas of weakness such as math, reading or writing. He/she will also be actively communicating with the student’s parents to ensure the student is receiving the necessary attention at school and at home that cater to the student’s intellectual development and well-being. Other assistance includes: reviewing class material, discussing text, formulating ideas for papers, or working on solutions to solve problems.


Bilingual Computer Instructor

This person will be assisting adults learn basic computer skills as many have faced challenges in keeping up-to-date with recent technological advancements. It is a good way for adults to gain these skills that would help them in the workplace or for personal use.


Bilingual Microsoft Word/Powerpoint/Publisher Instructor

This person will be teaching several important programs to those who are unfamiliar with it. The volunteer must be able to have a good understanding of MS Word, Powerpoint and Publisher and be comfortable teaching these skills to adults.


Bilingual Secretary Assistant

We are looking for a Spanish speaking person who will be able to greet visitors, answer phone calls, handle inquiries, and transfer each person to their appropriate department. This would be a great opportunity for those trying to get experience in an office environment.


ESL Instructor for Levels 1-4

We are looking several volunteers who will like to teach English as a second language at a Basic, intermediate, or Advance level to adults. Our target population is mainly Hispanic immigrants in the communities that we serve.


Proposal Writing

We are looking for a person who has knowledge of writing proposals for nonprofit organizations. The person needs to have some experience in this field. We receive funding through proposals which are then allocated to the services we offer. These services include ESL courses, computer courses, citizenship courses and the afterschool program. By receiving additional funding, we will be able to expand the services we offer.
